Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, ample experience researching the field of microbiology, and a research position at an American institute, our client seemed like a suitable candidate for EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers). Even so, we had to make sure that he obtained his employer’s full support before hiring us. Furthermore, we had to determine that his employer met the criteria to sponsor his EB-1B petition. Once we determined that everything was up to standard, we got to work building a strong EB-1B case for our client (an associate research scientist from India).

Leaving no stone unturned, we gathered as much information as we could on our client’s work on understanding the biology and pathogenesis of a specific nosocomial pathogen. By the time we were ready to file his case, we had collected enough data to prove that our client’s work addresses some of the US’ most pressing issues in understanding bacterial infections. Through our well-written petition letter, we persuaded the USCIS that our client deserved to continue his research unhindered in the US.

Besides detailing our client’s research efforts, we also noted the 14 publications to his name, the 163 times his work had been cited, and the 4 times he conducted peer reviews for well-known scientific journals. Moreover, we included six recommendation letters signed by his peers. According to one of them (a prominent professor), our client’s “…record of excellence in the field has placed him among the upper echelons in microbiology research worldwide.”

We are pleased that our diligent efforts paved the way for case approval. We wish our client the best as he files an I-485 application with the help of our D.I.Y. Packet. Not only do we look forward to updates, we also wish him the best as he continues to progress the field of microbiology in the United States.
